Hey Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors! Are you ready to explore the night sky, learn wilderness first-aid skills, and meet some nocturnal animals all while hanging out with your new best friends?
All this is possible at the 2018 Older Girl Journey Weekend at Sky High Ranch September 21 – 23. Our focus this year will be on the new Outdoor Journey, which is perfect for Colorado Girl Scouts who naturally seek adventure!
Through a weekend of full of skill-building activities, you will complete all requirements, except for the Take Action project, to earn your Outdoor Journey. Your group will consist of other Girl Scouts from across the state that are in the same program level. Adults can also register as a chaperone that will assist with activities, but it is not a requirement!
So, what does this weekend look like?!? Here is a rough idea of all the awesomeness you will experience.
Friday: Arrive at Sky High Ranch by 9 p.m. for check-in. Fun welcome from the staff and other volunteers. Campfire (if no fire ban) and free-time to hang out with your new best friends.
Saturday: Skill-building workshops in the morning/early afternoon, such as survival skills, camp/tent set-up, wilderness first-aid. Weather depending, fun adventure activity (did someone say zip-line?!!?!). Nocturnal animal visit in the evening (yes, real animals!). Sleep outside under the stars!
Sunday: Final skill-building workshop and check-out around noon (don’t forget to exchange numbers with all the new people you met!).
Spots are filling fast, so register ASAP. Registration and more information can be found here: http://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/en/events-repository/2018/older_girl_outdoor_j.html
